If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Histological section shows mainly decidualised endometrial tissue with hyperplastic glandular component
specimen: uterine evacuation?
Hyperplasia: The sample you describe is suggestive of overgrowth of tissue in the uterus due to irregular menstrual cycles. It is seen in women who go for > 6 months without bleeding and suggests overstimulation due to estrogen effect. If left untreated, it could lead to endometrial cancer.

Nothing by itself: If this is included in a description of a tumor, then the full diagnosis of the tumor needs to be included. If this is a description of a non-neoplastic mucosa, it requires a non-tumor diagnosis. This is only a part of a pathology report, meaningless without the larger picture. You have a right to a full explanation from your caregiver, who has a "path" course in med school. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 2 consectv fnac report reveal follicular neoplasm with microfollicular pattern, with anisonuecleosis, no colloid. Is it benign or malignant?
Follicular lesions: FNA cannot differentiate between benign and malignant follicular lesions. Evidence of capsular or lymph/vascular invasion are necessary to diagnose follicular carcinoma. FNA can help determine if surgery is needed to further classify a lesion, or if a "wait and watch" approach is warranted. For definitive diagnosis, the nodule has to be removed and examined by a pathologist. Hope this helps! ...Read more
